can't start it in the high school. this is like sex education and talking to 17, 18-year-olds about responsible sex. it starts in preschool and kindergarten. if we don't get our handle on good nutrition in school and teach the habits and then continue them, you know, in to the home, we have lost the battle. do i think school could be an island? it's a first step. the problem is nobody wants to change and i have talked to kids who have been hungry before and they said, look. don't tell me that an apple is better than a snickers bar. i get it's more nutritious and won't fill me up and they have a case. it's because we have taught them not to like it. what tastes better than french fries? >> nothing. >> nothing. nothing. so it's really rewiring the brain but if we save this generation of dying early, it is on parents' backs to make the changes whether the kids like it or not. that's tough love but that's where it starts. >> thank you so much. >> you bet, chris. >> great to have you on the program. that wraps up this hour. i'm chris janesing. thomas roberts is up next. >> good morning t

? >> i think it's going to be very difficult but we've got to continue to educate them and knock on doors. if you look at the rebirth of the auto industry, mitt romney did not support that. >> i've been saying this across ohio. it has an impact of what is going on across this country. there's a small auto center plant 100 workers supported and they are being laid off and what is interesting about this they brought the chinese into fr freeport, illinois and had to be trained by the workers being laid off. the connection is this. bain capital is responsible for this. bain capital. and not only that, al, they came in and there was an american flag that was in that plant. they took down the american flag and raised the chinese flag. that's not the kind of america we want to be. that's not what barack obama and joe biden stand for. but this is bain capital doing that. there's got to be a connection between bain capital and mitt romney. >> they hung these workers are going to be laid off. i was talking to the president of the union the other day about this. we've got to talk about these issues.

to an education roundtable and a fund-raiser and another big rally tonight planned. another thing unusual about his speech in toledo was the fact it was much longer than usual. he went 33 minutes or so. usually we get a15, 20 minutes out of him and he doesn't spend a lot of time talking about foreign policy. because the crowd saw governor romney's speech at the virginia military institute, paul ryan wanted to talk a little bit about that and perhaps giving him a little more of a chance to get some of the foreign policy stuff out there publicly. obviously, his debate on thursday with vice president joe biden will be a mix of foreign policy and domestic issues. over the weekend we asked him about his preparations for this debate on thursday and what kind of energy he expects the vice president to bring. this is what he had to say. >> well, i guess we don't have the sound, which makes for a funny joke, here's what he had to say, quiet. he said something, ron. can you tell us what he said? >> reporter: basically he expects vice president biden come out like a cannonball and maybe perh
